Jericho Brown Keynote at AJC Decatur Book Festival

Friday September 4, 2020 02:30 pm EDT
Cost: Free
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Decatur Book Festival Presented by Emory University is proud to present 2020 Pulitzer Prize winner Jericho Brown as this year’s Keynote speaker. In conversation with festival board president, Mathwon Howard, Brown will discuss his most recent book, The Tradition, that details the normalization of evil and its history at the intersection of the past and the personal. As in much of his poetry, Brown highlights both the broad and intimate, and at their very core a distillation of the incredibly human. Brown makes mythical pastorals to question the terrors to which we’ve become accustomed, and to celebrate how we survive. Join us for a reading and discussion with one of the greatest poets of our time, and an integral member of the Emory community.
